Overview
More
Blacktip Scuba is a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort on Long Beach, Phi Phi Island. We are situated within Phi Phi The Beach Resort, a 30 minute walk or short boat ride from the busy port of Tonsai Bay. We take our name from the harmless Blacktip reef sharks that you can see daily on our house reef 'Hin Pae' or 'Phi Phi Shark Point', just a 5 minute snorkel from the dive centre. At Blacktip we keep group numbers to a minimum, allowing us to provide excellent, personal customer service.
